“Good affordable food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

If you want to have a meal that is not very expensive, and is good, then you should go to La Parada. it is just in front of La Fortuna Park and it has everything you may want to eat. They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner and has even a part where they offer food 24 hours a day. Although it is not gourmet cuisine, it is nice food.

“Better than you would expect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

Lets face it - it looks like a typical tourist trap off the main square. In fact, the food and service were well above average. They cook local staples and US style fast food. The drinks were tasty and affordable

“Try the pizza - it's very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

This place always seemed to be busy when we walked past, so my family and I decided to eat here one night (instead of going to the expensive steak restaurant down the road). I would say that pizzas are their speciality. We had two large pizzas between the four of us, and there was plenty for us to eat. And the tastes were really good (try the plain, old fahioned cheese pizza - it's oozing with cheesy flavors). The serving staff were prompt and helpful, and I really liked the atmosphere in this place. And the prices are spot on too. Definitely recommended.

“CR X-MAS 2012”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

A good and reasonable place to have a meal at ANY time of day as it is open 24 hours a day. Right in the center of town just to one side of the church.
